This is one of the best french action movie made in the 80's. This has nothing to do with a today's block buster from Hollywood, but the famous cues from Michel Audiard and the "Chi Mai" music from Ennio Morricone participate in creating an atmosphere that will keep you under suspense till the deadly end. There are some scenes that appear to be very old now (the one with the computer is quite comic today) and some others that you will remember for the text. To conclude : a tremendous script, Audiard's cues, Morricones's music, some handmade fights and a spectacular cars'pursuit in the most famous streets of Paris. And you still doesn't want to see this film ?
